How far is too far when you're kitting out your bike?
We've all seen them... The guy or girl who look like they've just stepped out of an ad for their specific colour scheme, and you have to admit, they look great, and while we're all for being one with your bike, how far is too far?
In all honesty, it shouldn't really matter. Whatever a person has decided to spice up their bike or their person with has no direct impact on your bike or your riding. I know! Crazy right? In fact the only thing that directly impacts you and your riding is you, and negative attitudes make for a bad ride.
So maybe next time you see someone with pedal, grips, spacers, valve caps, chain rings, etc. that are perfectly colour matched to their bike, and their person, maybe just stop for a second and take it all in. Appreciate them for who they are and move on.
We all have the same end goal in sight and that's to go outside and ride bikes, and if someone wants to get out there looking and feeling great, then more power to them.
Don't be a hater. Go ride your bike.
